2013 NSF GRFP awardee Lujendra Ojha led a study that suggests there is liquid water on Mars.
A new study led by scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology provides the strongest evidence yet that there is intermittent flowing liquid water on modern Mars. Using instruments on board NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), researchers measured spectral signatures of hydrated minerals on slopes where mysterious, possibly water-related streaks are found on the red planet. These streaks, known as recurring slope lineae (RSL), form and snake down the planet’s steep slopes during warm seasons when temperatures exceed -10 degrees Fahrenheit (-23 degrees Celsius). They disappear at colder times during the Martian year.
I also want to use the Carroll L. Lurding Library of College Fraternity and Sorority Materials which is available through the Indiana University’s Lilly Library. Spanning the years 1840-2014, the collection consists of “books, pamphlets, histories, yearbooks, and other bound volumes detailing the history of fraternities, sororities, colleges, and universities from all 50 states and the District of Columbia in the United States as well as some colleges in Canada.” The items were donated by Carrol Lurding, a Delta Upsilon who loves researching the history of college fraternal organizations. He is still at it and last I heard, he was researching the local organizations at the SUNY institutions.
